Plums, damsons and greengages aren’t always the first choice for gardeners when it comes to growing fruit. But the right selection of variety and some care can produce a glut of wonderful eating and cooking fruit
Plum trees may not be the first choice of a fruit tree for the inexperienced gardener but they are hugely rewarding to grow.
Be careful to choose what type of plum tree is best for you. Buying a plum tree which might grow to 30ft tall, producing masses of cooking plums is not a good idea if you have a small garden and want eating plums!
